Luck of the Draw

4.31  ·  Rating Details  ·  165 Ratings  ·  19 Reviews
Friends come and go, but the good ones are hard to let go. Kennedy and her best friend Cherae were like "two peas in a pod," Kennedy's daddy would say because they were tighter than a large man in a medium suit jacket. Although they were totally different in size, personality and back ground, they had been friends and loved each other since the seecond grade.

Kennedy and Cherae was the closet of friends. On a girl’s night out with Kennedy, Cherae and Teresa, they met Julian. And with the luck of the draw Cherae becomes extremely jealous. With jealously, comes the test of friendship.


Why I hate this book, Cherae. Why I love the book, Kennedy. However, O.M.G! Cherae is trifling, trifling, trifling.. beyond words and the fact that she got good in the end has me so upset. But, I can't ev

Omg is all i can say! I started reading this book one o'clock this morning at work, I'm just putting it down do to the fact that i am finished. Anna Black you did your thing girl this was my first book by you but not my last!! #team Kenny & Jay big girls rock!!!
This is my second read by Anna Black. She didn't disappoint with "Luck of the Draw". The book is about Kennedy a spoiled, trusting, sweet woman who loves her best friend like a "sister". However, her friend, Cherae thinks she's a rich, spoiled, fat bitch who's had everything handed to her, an easy life. Ironically, this same sister-friend lives this "good-life" as well because she lives and mooches off Kennedy (always begging for money) as well as Kennedy's family. Kennedy finally meets a "good" ...more

So I was a fan of Now You Wanna come back, Anna’s first book and when opening up Luck of the Draw I was not disappointed. I loved the drama, the deceit, and the overall depiction of genuine love. One thing I know about Anna Black novel’s is that when I read her work I am going to get a love story like no other, mainly ending the perfect way. This story shows how a friend can be jealous and have self hate without actually admitting it. When Kennedy attracts the perfect man, Cherae would want, all ...more

So after almost a month of hearing my sister going on and on about this book, I finally decided to read it. It was great from the first page to the very last page. I read it in less than a day because I could never get to a point where I wanted to put it down. The characters were well developed and it didn't portray AA as living the ghetto fabulous lifestyle. The main character, Kennedy, was a successful business owner who, at times, had me wanting to slam my galaxy tab. Her "bestfriend" Cherae ...more

I am so loving the anna black books.This one stared a little slower than the other but im glad I stuck with.As usual this book didn't stop with the drama and these best friends were off the chain.Jealousy is the root of all evil.Charae will definitely have you wondering if you have this type of friend in your group.In he end if something is meant to be it will happen and you might be surprise how things turn out.

This is my fifth book read from Anna Black. Anna Black did a really good job put out this book because her book will never disappointed and bored to me. I am happy that Kennedy and Cherae are back to friend even though Cherae did Kennedy wrong. This book and author deserves five stars and I'm looking forward to read another book from this author.

Luck of the draw is just how it all went down. Three friends hit the club scene and are all taken back by the fine as wine, Julian. Kennedy, Cherae and Teresa all wanted him, but who had the best hand landed the prize. Too bad everyone can't respect the rules of the game. Friendships get tested when best friends, Kennedy and Cherae go toe to toe in the game of love. Kennedy is playing for keeps while a betrayal of the worst kind creeps in to destroy.

I loved this book. This plot can be seen in e

This is a good read. Don't know if it's my thing, though. But everything is executed well. Timing is great, as well as the dialogue. Just not my thing, seeing it is about, women getting men.

Quick read with a predictable plot but interesting enough to finish. This is why you have to watch your friends and trust your man.
